3D Print Works Offering Refillable 3D Printing Filament Reels to Go with Masterspool Project

While designers, enthusiasts, and hobbyists may have lots of at-home 3D printing needs today, it’s impossible to turn ideas and projects into completed parts without a steady supply of good filament…and that can get pricey if you don’t know where to look for affordable materials. But the other issue that comes part and parcel with purchasing […]

3D Printing Comes to the Rescue in the Solomon Islands

3D Printing Comes to the Rescue in the Solomon Islands

There are still far too many places in the world that don’t have access to clean, safe water. With the development of new technology, however, that issue can be addressed, and 3D printing has played a part in water relief including filtration devices and delivery carts. The Solomon Islands is one country that needs water […]

University in India Inaugurates 3D and 4D Additive Manufacturing Course in Waste Management

You may not think about the number of times you throw discarded waste items into your trash can every day, rather than trudging out to the recycling bin instead, but it’s probably significant. There is a lot of waste in the world today, but luckily, there are also a lot of people working hard to […]

Using Trash to 3D Print a Path to Better City Living

Using Trash to 3D Print a Path to Better City Living

At least ever since the birth of alchemy, the dream has always been to be able to turn something worthless and common into something valuable. I’ve been desperately casting about for a recipe for turning used kleenex into gold; alas, no luck so far. However, with the invention of 3D printers and their ability to […]

Indian Company Protoprint Transforms Waste into 3D Printing Filament for Commercial Use

This week, we reported on New Zealand-based Waikato University’s revolutionary FDM technology-based 3D printing method that allows anyone to print complex objects by converting waste material into thermoplastic filament, and we’ve seen several initiatives around the world focused on bringing waste material into reuse via 3D printing. An Indian company called Protoprint is leading a similar […]

OmniDynamics Seeks Funding for Strooder Desktop Filament Maker

One of the most amazing things about 3D printing is that it is a disruptive technology. It is an alternative to mass manufacturing, allowing designers, inventors and makers the opportunity to create products locally without a large investment. Sure, there are the costs of the printer itself and the filament, but it’s a nascent technology […]

How Using 3D LIDAR Technology Can Help Keep Our Beaches Litter-Free

How Using 3D LIDAR Technology Can Help Keep Our Beaches Litter-Free

Humans continue to produce garbage and waste at unprecedented rates, and sadly much of it ends up in our oceans which promptly deposit great amounts of it on our beaches. Not only are garbage-covered beaches unsightly, but they pose very real health risks to our coastal wildlife like seabirds, fish or sea turtles that can […]

When it comes to pollution, one of the most detrimental issues we are dealing with as a society, besides global warming, is the massive build-up of plastic waste floating within our oceans. Did you know that each years there is approximately 8 million metric tons of plastic which ends up in our oceans? That’s approximately […]
